DJ esports

The first CS:GO Major in two years is finally here. PGL Major Stockholm 2021 marks a return to the best of Counter-Strike with 24 teams across the world fighting it out for a $2 million prize pool.

  • Astralis will fight for survival against Brazilian side paiN
  • Three more teams will advance to the Legends stage and three will be sent home
  • $2 million is up for grabs, with $1 million for the outright winner

Since Astralis was crowned four-time champions at the Berlin Major 2019, a lot has changed in Counter-Strike. New dynasties have risen and fallen, and the global order is shifting.

Now, all of that will be put to the test at PGL Major Stockholm 2021. The world’s best squads have descended on Sweden ⁠— almost 10 years on from when the country held CS:GO first’s major in 2013 ⁠— to fight it out for a $1 million grand prize, and $2 million purse overall.

PGL Major Stockholm 2021: Format

PGL Major Stockholm 2021 will follow the same three-tier format previous majors have implemented. Teams will be divided between Legends, Challengers, and Contenders stages depending on how they perform in their regional qualifiers.

The tournament will then progress from the lower Challengers stage, all the way to Champions. Legends Teams will get a free pass to the Legends stage, while Challengers and Contenders teams will start from square one.

The Challengers and the Legends stages will feature a Swiss format, with three victories sending teams through to the next stage and three defeats sending them home. The elimination and the advanced matches will be played in a best-of-three format, while the remaining matches will be single-map affairs.

The top 8 in Legends will progress to the Champions stage, where one final single-elimination bracket awaits them. The games will start October 26, running until November 7.
